===Round 1===
 
===Round 1===
Team Asui contemplates on what they should do. Tsuyu suggests since both teams know each others quirks to a certain extent they should stick together and overwhelm them with numbers. Denki wants to go off alone and be a sniper from a distance, while Hitoshi notices Tsuyu's Camouflage ability, but Eijiro points out to Denki that he would be at a disadvantage against great numbers if caught alone. Denki agrees and points out they should be cautious of Ibara, and Hitoshi agrees that they should get rid of the most troublesome Quirk users first. The whole team contemplates on their battle strategy knowing that they must play to their advantages if they are going to win against Class 1-B.
+
Team Asui decides to stick together and overwhelm Team Shiozaki with their numbers. Tsuyu starts out camouflaging herself on the wall and Hitoshi comments how if you're aware of it, you can still see her. [[Denki Kaminari|Denki]] offers to split up from the group and fire off his [[Electrification|Quirk]] only for [[Eijiro Kirishima|Eijiro]] to question what he'll do once he's all alone. Hitoshi offers to neutralize the ones who have the most troublesome Quirks, as it's probably what the other team is thinking.
   
===Round 2===
+
Just then, [[Koji Koda|Koji]]'s birds return, to which he reveals that Ibara is to their left all alone yet she's heading their way while using her vines to probe all around her. Before they can act, [[Jurota Shishida|Jurota]] comes charging in. He reveals that they knew Koji would locate them with his birds and that they'd be wary of Ibara's Quirk after the Sports Festival, so they had her act as a decoy and allow himself to get in close using his [[Beast]] to avoid leaving Denki to his own devices. [[Kosei Tsuburaba|Kosei]], who was riding Jurota, uses his [[Solid Air|Quirk]] to imprison Koji in an [[Air Prison|air prison]] to prevent Denki from using his Quirk around his teammates. Kosei then comments on Jurota's accomplishment only for him to become still, as it's revealed Kosei never said anything, but the voice came from Hitoshi, using his [[Artificial Vocal Cords: Persona Code|Artificial Vocal Chords: Persona Chords]].
   
===Round 3===
+
Early before, Hitoshi explains how his [[Brainwashing|Quirk]] works to his team, but also reveals that he can't make his brainwashed targets talk. To fix that problem, Hitoshi's Artificial Vocal Chords essentially alters his voice to mimic someone else's voice. As we catch up to the present, Kosei traps Hitoshi in another Air Prison and wakes Jurota up from his brainwashing. When Jurota charges to attack, Denki steps in the way with his own Quirk. He gets smacked aside but manages to shock Jurota. Kosei's efforts to escape electrocution by jumping off Jurota leaves him open to be grabbed by Tsuyu with her tongue. As she proceeds to carry him to their jail cell, Jurota proceeds to chase after her. Koji and Eijiro try to keep him back but he dodges them by changing back to normal, then transforms back into a beast and grabs the both of them. Jurota throws Eijiro high into the air and into Ibara's field of vision, stating that he's the only one who can withstand his power. Denki and Tsuyu, who delivered Kosei, try to save Koji but Jurota escapes for the time being, and both Eijiro and Koji are imprisoned, leaving the score as 2-1 Class B.
   
===Round 4===
+
Tsuyu breaks Hitoshi free and the three of them regroup and try to come up with a plan. Back with Class 1-B, Ibara complains about how she was treated as a decoy only for Jurota to say it worked. Just then, Jurota picks up Tsuyu's scent, only to realize he's picking up three Tsuyu scents. Izuku and Minoru remember what Tsuyu said about how she could secrete her own mucus during the [[U.S.J. Incident|Attack on U.S.J]], and that she applied her mucus to Denki and Hitoshi hoping to throw off Jurota's scent. Ibara attack with her '[[Via Dolorosa]]' Super Move while Jurota tells her their locations. [[Hiryu Rin|Hiryu]] wonders how their locations were uncovered only to notice one of Denki's pointers on Jurota's body. Just then, Ibara captures Denki and brings him forward. Denki fires his elctricity at pointer just as Ibara starts covering him in her vines, but Hiryu knocks it off Jurota's body and away from him with his [[scales]]. Just as Hiryu tells Ibara to respread her vines, she falls under Hitoshi's brainwashing, as it was revealed to be his voice sounding like Hiryu. It is then revealed that Denki offered to use himself as a decoy to give Tsuyu and Hitoshi an opening. Jurota goes wild trying to find Hitoshi and is unable to communicate effectively with Hiryu due to worrying about Hitoshi's [[Brainwashing|Quirk]]. Hiryu tries to attack Tsuyu with his scales but fails. He tries again to communicate with Jurota but gets kicked by Tsuyu. Just as Jurota finds Hitoshi, Hitoshi uses his binding cloth to bring down several pipes onto Jurota's head. Tsuyu then throws Hiryu into Jurota, defeating the both of them. Tsuyu and Hitoshi carry a restrained Hiryu to the jail cell while a brainwashed Ibara carries Jurota. Round 1 ends with a 4-2 victory for Class 1-A.
Class 1-A charges through Ground Gamma while Kyoka listens for their opponents. Katsuki notices someone up ahead and tells Kyoka to hurry and find their location. Kyoka stops and notices there are dozens of sounds that lead them into a trap. She tries to warn her team but it's too late. Setsuna's detached mouth sneaks up behind Katsuki and confirms the ambush.
 
   
[[File:Setsuna Tokage reveals herself to Katsuki.png|200px|left|thumb|Katsuki's team falls into Setsuna's trap.]]
+
===Round 1 Aftermath===
Setsuna's [[Lizard Tail Splitter|Quirk]] lets her spread out her separated limbs throughout the field and used them to create noises that lead Class 1-A into a trap. She used Kyoka's reconnaissance Quirk against them and attacks with her tiny body parts. They barrage Katsuki with rapid-fire small hits and Hanta uses [[Barricade Tape]] to protect his team.
+
After the match Shota asks his students to reflect on the match. Eijiro states it's hard for him to make good use of his Quirk when he's not trying to fight, Koji states he needs to give better orders to insects, Denki states he was great, Tsuyu regrets losing two teammates, and Hitoshi laments not making good use of what he's learned. Shota tells Eijiro to work on developing set-ups to lure his enemies to close-combat, tells Koji to work on his weak points, scolds Denki for being too careless from the get-go, and tells Tsuyu to not dwell on her mistakes and to work on making up for them next time.
   
Setsuna tells Kojiro it's his turn and he uses [[Glue Squall]] spread his adhesive all over the area. Hanta tries to lead the three of them away but Togaru uses his [[Sharp Edge|Quirk]] to slash a large pipe that crashes down toward the other team. Rikido tries to sacrifice himself to hold it up but Katsuki manages to fire a large enough explosion to save his team.
+
Vlad King calls his students out on that no one was really acting as a leader, and had they did pick one, they would've won. All the other teams work to prepare effective strategies while Shota and Vlad King ask about Hitoshi's performance, as the training is going to be his exam for entering the hero course. Round 2 then begins between Team Yaoyorozu and Team Kendo.
   
Togaru believes Katsuki's actions destroyed his team's protective shelter. He propels himself off the pipes using blades from his feet and uses his speed to attack. Setsuna orders him to take out Kyoka first because her Quirk is the most troublesome. Katsuki uses an explosion to propel himself behind Kyoka and kicks her away. He uses a second explosion to repel Togaru, using a new strength to help his team. {{Ref|name=ch207}}
+
===Round 2===
  +
As the two teams head to their starting points, Itsuka asks Momo why she didn't participate in the Beauty Contest of the School Festival, she responds that Shota probably didn't tell her because he felt it wasn't important, and even so, she was busy with band practice. Itsuka then tells Momo that ever since they appeared in the commercial during their Workplace Experiences together, she feels that the two, of them have been seen as a pair, yet Itsuka considers Momo possesses a better Quirk than her own and that she has better grades, which irritated her. This results in Itsuka tells Momo that she wants to duke it out with her, to which Momo accepts. Shihai then approaches Fumikage and tells him that they are fated to clash because of their love of black and darkness. Just as the two sides are set, Round 2 begins.
   
[[File:Katsuki Bakugo saves Kyoka from Togaru.png|180px|thumb|"Win by saving people."]]
+
Hanta asks Tetsutetsu what Itsuka's standing in Class 1-B to which he says she's like the class's big sister as their class president who is cheerful and keeps her wits up and that without her, the class would suffer under Neito. Shoto comments on whether Momo can pierce her operation.
Togaru protects himself with thick blades from his arm and legs. Katsuki commends the "insects" reflexes and blows him away with an explosion. Togaru recovers by sending a blade from his back into a pipe that kills the momentum. He decides to retreat because those were Setsuna's orders. Neito is surprised to see that Katsuki saved Kyoka. Denki and Eijiro claim Katsuki's changed since the [[U.A. Sports Festival|Sports Festival]] but Neito refuses to believe it. Eijiro admits it's the first time he's seen Katsuki throw himself into danger for someone else, but claims it's no surprise.
 
   
Katsuki doesn't care about Class 1-A winning the overall training but he wants to win this battle 4-0 with no injuries because that's a victory fit for the strongest. Kyoka tries to hone in on Class 1-B but Setsuna's interference makes it difficult. She does notice that there are fewer sounds than before and Class 1-B is retreating. Katsuki surmises they're trying to regroup and gets angry because they're underestimating him.
+
Itsuka tells her team that they have to wait and see how powerful their enemy team is, just as Dark Shadow locates the four of them, as it is revealed Fumikage has increased the range of Dark Shadow during his Work Studies. Before Class 1-A can make their move, Dark Shadow warns Fumikage that he's been hijacked by Shihai, who immediately uses Dark Shadow to attack Fumikage. Momo fires some nets at him but he dodges with his Quirk [[Black]]. Fumikage tells Shihai that he accepts his challenge as he takes off his cloak and reveals his new super move: [[Black Fallen Angel]], which he developed under his intership with [[Keigo Takami|Hawks]].
   
Katsuki notices Kojiro retreating above them and uses explosions to blast his way up to him. Yosetsu supports his team as they retreat and covers Kojiro. He remains hidden until Katsuki is in position and them traps him with his [[Super Move]] [[Construction-Done-Kwik: Weldcraft]]! Yosetsu uses his Quirk to bond Katsuki's body with stone pillars that trap him to the pipes he was trying to fly through.
+
In a flashback, it's revealed that Hawks picked Fumikage during the [[Hero Agency Internships]] because he wanted to know more about the League of Villains from the class that faced them and figured he'd work with someone who he felt could keep up with him. As the intership continued, Fumikage started to feel frustrated and confused as to why someone as fast as him had picked him when all he was doing was cleaning up after Hawks did his job, causing him to feel he learned nothing that week. When Hawks picked him for the Work Studies, Fumikage became determined to prove himself. One night, Hawks tells Fumikage that he also picked him because he felt he was wasting his potential by not trying to strengthen his strong points in addition to his weak points, and he wanted to help him as a fellow bird. This is what ultimately inspired his new Super Move.
   
[[File:Team Katsuki's Perfect Teamwork.png|200px|left|thumb|Class 1-A's flawless teamwork.]]
+
In the present, as Fumikage readied himself for a fight, Shihai reveals that he was setting him up mentally since the beginning, as his real target was Yuga, whom he grabs and proceeds to drag away. Just as Shihai was thinking how they'd never catch up to him in a place filled with shadows to move through, Fumikage catches up to him with his Super Move, allowing him to rescue Yuga. Momo then tells Yuga to fire off his [[Navel Laser Buffet|Naval Buffet]] while Fumikage flies around to change the shape of the shadows, exposing Shihai. Just as Toru charges to catch him, a mushroom pops up on Momo's nose, as it's revealed that if Shihai's Plan A failed, Kinoko would perform Plan B with her Quirk [[Mushroom]].
Hanta surmises that Setsuna's eyes are making it easy for the other team to read their movements. Yosetsu runs away and hides within the pipes so Hanta can't get a clear shot off with his tape. Rikido acts quickly and uses his Quirk to free Katsuki from his restraints. Katsuki flies at Yosetsu, who's impressed by his team's quick actions. Katsuki gets out of the way and lets his teammates take out the enemy. Hanta carries Kyoka to the fight and she attacks Yosetsu with [[Heartbeat Surround]].
 
   
Katsuki flies at Kojiro and admits the winter season has slowed him down. Setsuna supports Kojiro with her body pieces and the latter counterattacks with adhesive. Katsuki claims that he's finally warming up and barrages Kojiro with a wide cascade of explosions. Rikido quickly grabs Kojiro and Hanta wraps up Yosetsu. Within a few seconds, Class 1-A has captured two of their opponents.
+
Kinoko spreads mushrooms everywhere, causing Team Yaoyorozu to lose sight of Shihai in the swarm of mushrooms. As Momo tries to get her team to regroup, they are then attacked by giant letters courtesy of Manga's Quirk [[Comic]], which he then uses to help Kinoko's mushrooms grow faster. As Momo realizes she's been separated from her team, she is attacked by Itsuka, who uses her Quirk to go all out on Momo, keeping her from coming up with an effective plan. As Tetsutetsu comments on Itsuka's performance of separating her, only for Shoto to say that Itsuka was misjudging Momo as she works best under pressure. Just then, Momo uses her Quirk to create a cannon, shocking Itsuka. Momo then fires a [[Yaoyorozu's Lucky Bag|bag]] over the wall Manga made to her team. Fumikage tries to save Yuga from Shihai again but is constantly held back by Kinoko's mushrooms and Manga's words, allowing him to imprison Yuga and causing Fumikage to deduce that if they don't find their locations, they're done for. Just then, Momo's bag arrives to Fumikage, which is revealed to be a pair of infrared goggles and three cans of ethanol, a fungal spray, allowing him to destroy Kinoko's mushrooms and locate Shihai and Kinoko to attack both of them. He has Dark Shadow restrain Kinoko while he traps Shihai in his cape. Before he can do anything, Fumikage starts coughing, as it's revealed by Kinoko that she has mushrooms growing in his lungs, to which Neito comments that Fumikage should have knocked Kinoko out from the get-go.
   
Nervous, Neito mulls over how he expected Katsuki to act brashly on his own. Setsuna believed Katsuki would charge in on his own and her team would be able to exploit any weakness created by his selfishness. However, Katsuki's team follows through close behind him and their teamwork is virtually perfect. Ochaco points out of the [[U.A. School Festival|School Festival]] helped Katsuki trust his fellow bandmates
+
Toru starts attacking Manga but ends up getting grabbed by Itsuka with her Quirk, where Itsuka reveals to Manga that while she knocked Momo out, she ended up tying her up to the cannon, making it hard to move. She comments that Momo looked far ahead and was one step ahead of her, causing her to feel that she didn't win in the end. Nevertheless, Class 1-B bring the three of them to the jail cell, securing a 4-0 victory.

+
===Round 2 Aftermath===
Kyoka points Katsuki in Togaru's direction. Hanta realizes that Setsuna must regenerate any sections of her body that were lost. He surmises that she likely has to return her other pieces when regenerating to avoid going over her limit. Hanta attaches Katsuki's grenade to one of her pieces. Katsuki grabs Togaru by his horn and uses [[Explode-A-Pult]] to vault him fiercely into the wall.
+
Kinoko tells Fumikage to take medicine for the mushrooms while apologizing to him and Momo is taken to get treated. The teachers decide to take a break while commenting on how much destruction there was and reprimand Manga and Itsuka for it. All Might talks with Izuku about One For All and to take care in the fifth match while he himself talks to Gran Torino. Katsuki comes in and tells Izuku to hurry up and get stronger. Round 3 then begins between Team Todoroki and Team Tetsutetsu.
   
Setsuna notices the grenade and avoids the blast, but she plays right into Katsuki's hands. He sneaks up on her and blasts her in the face with a Point Blank Stun Grenade. Setsuna screams that Katsuki's changed too much and crashes to the ground. Katsuki stands over her defeated body and claims he hasn't changed at all. He still plans on surpassing All Might and becoming the No. 1 Hero. {{Ref|name=ch208}}
+
===Round 3===
  +
Both teams head to their respective sides. On Team Todoroki, Tenya reveals he's in high spirits because his [[Tensei Iida|brother]] was making good progress on his recovery, causing him to feel to uphold his name as his brother's inheritor. On Team Tetsutetsu, Tetsutetsu comments on how he was able to get into UA despite not being too bright as well as commenting how his team doesn't have anyone who can search out their enemy, causing him to just go wild and break stuff. His teammates complain to Juzo but he remains flexible in his approach. Shoto notices the noise and deduces that this will be a head-to-head battle.
   
===Round 5===
+
As Shoto's team makes their move, [[Pony Tsunotori|Pony]] comments on how they were charging in so blindly. Juzo says that he'll use Mezo to determine the situation, for if they were leaving themselves so open, then that means they were setting up for Shoto to unleash his ice, which indeed happens. Tenya, who was watching from afar, notes that they were trying to freeze the ground so Juzo couldn't use his [[Softening|Quirk]] and that they would attack when their movements were dulled. However, just as Tenya starts moving, Juzo activates his Quirk on the ice, making it soft while commenting that getting hit with ice would make it much easier for them. [[Mashirao Ojiro|Mashirao]] stumbles on a softened pipe as Juzo states he left a few soft spots as traps, allowing [[Sen Kaibara|Sen]] to get in close to fight him. Tenya is unable to get to Mashirao due to Juzo's Quirk eliminating his foothold.
Izuku leaps out ahead of his team, using [[One For All: Full Cowl]] to propel himself through the pipes at high speed. Some of Izuku's classmates recognize that his team's formation is similar to Katsuki's, but [[Hanta Sero]] notes that they lacks a sensory type like [[Kyoka Jiro]], meaning that Izuku will have to work harder than Katsuki to find his enemies.
 
   
[[File:Neito uses Poltergeist.png|200px|left|thumb|Neito provokes Izuku.]]
+
Pony attacks Mezo and Shoto with her [[Horn Cannon|Quirk]], stating that Mezo would have to be hiding within the limit's safety zone and around Shoto. Tetsutetsu then tackles Shoto with his combination Super Move [[Horn Dash Hammer]]. Meanwhile back with Juzo and Tenya, Juzo states he wanted to deal with Tenya due to his [[Engine|Quirk]]'s time limit. As he prepares to back up Tetsutetsu, Tenya shocks him by revealing a new Super Move: [[Recipro Turbo]], which allows him to run for 10 minutes as opposed to 10 seconds. He breaks free of the softened ice and proceeds to fight Juzo, causing him to retreat for the time being. Tenya catches up to Mashirao who is still fighting Sen and grabs him. He then tells Mashirao to back up Shoto while he puts Sen away. Sen tries to escape and questions Tenya on why he didn't pursue Juzo, resulting in Tenya stating his brother would've done the same.
Izuku knows Class 1-B can't ignore him and stands out on purpose, fulfilling his act as a decoy. Neito makes himself known to Izuku using Hitoshi's voice changer to imitate Ochaco’s scream, which greatly startles Izuku. Neito admits his team knows better than to ignore a powerhouse type like Izuku, but adds that they might try crushing his team first. Izuku knows Neito is trying to provoke him and remains silent. Neito continues provoking the idea that Izuku's team is in trouble but he refuses to give a signal to their location.
 
   
Neito prepares his copied Quirks as Izuku lunges at him. With one final strike of his words, Neito asks how Katsuki can smile knowing his destroyed the Symbol of Peace. Angered, Izuku aims his Air Force technique directly at his foe.
+
Shoto tries to hold Tetsutetsu back with his ice before resorting to using his fire. As he tells Mezo to deal with Pony, Tetsutetsu reveals that his [[Steel|Quirk]] has increased his resistance to both ice and fire. He continues his attack on Shoto as Shoto recalls his past with his [[Enji Todoroki|father]]. This causes Shoto to unleash fire stronger than Endeavor's, but it still doesn't stop Tetsutetsu, who yells that they need to go beyond their limits in training or they'll never be able to do it in real life. Pony decides to back up Tetsutetsu so she unleashes her [[Thunder Horn|Super Move]] on Mezo, only for him to fire his [[Octoblow|own]] back. Mashirao manages to arrive on the scene just in time to protect Mezo from one of Pony's horns and grabs her horns to keep her back. Before Mezo can go and back up Shoto, Juzo arrives to help her. Just as he planned to force Mashirao to let go, Mashirao [[Fist of the Tail: Swamp Smack Spin|spins around]] to blow him away and propel Mezo out of the mud. Pony tells Juzo to go while she uses her horns to propel Mashirao into their team's jail cell while the two of them continue to fight. When Juzo arrives at Tetsutetsu's location, he knocks debris on Shoto's head and then hardens him into the ground. Tenya then rushes in and kickes Juzo in the face, breaking his mask, and running off with the downed Shoto. Unable to lose, Juzo softens a large pipe and has Tetsutetsu knock it down on the two of them. When the dust settles, all four of them are down.
   
Minoru ties several of his balls to a string and lays them throughout the area in the hope that they can act as something of a trap to snag an opposing member, and when it finally gets a tug he believes he's done just that. However, this turns out to be Reiko is using her [[Poltergeist]] Quirk to levitate a barrage of objects around the area, while [[Yui Kodai]] uses her [[Size]] to change their mass as a means of throwing their opponents off. Ochaco deflects an onslaught of metal projectiles, but Nirengeki uses [[Twin Impact]] to add a second wave to the barrage. Class 1-B's attack has helped Nirengeki get a rough idea of Class 1-A's location, so he, Reiko, and Yui continue hiding together to prepare their next attack.
+
Pony catches up to the field and grabs her teammates and Shoto. She realizes she can't turn around to fight Mezo and isn't fast enough to deliver Shoto to the prison without getting caught, so she decides to wait out the match to prevent her team from losing. After 20 minutes pass, the match is announced a draw with 1-1 on each side.
   
[[File:Ochaco saves Izuku from Blackwhip.png|200px|thumb|right|Uravity jumps in to save Izuku]]
+
===Round 3 Aftermath===
Before Izuku can ever release his Air Force attack, mysterious black power bursts out of his arm.{{Ref|chap = 210}} He tries kicking his own arm to contain the extreme surge of energy erupting from it, but it overflows and black tendrils suddenly rush at Neito below. Neito dives out of the way just in time, and the black tendrils begin to latch on to objects in the area, pulling Izuku through the maze of pipes to where Hitoshi's hiding. He yells for Hitoshi to run.
+
Shoto, Tenya, Mashirao, Tetsutetsu, and Juzo are taken to the infirmary. As Shoto wakes up, Tetsutetsu tells Shoto that even though it was a tie, he still feels he lost. Tenya apologizes to Shoto for not being fast enough but Shoto apologizes himself, thinking back to how Tenya helped him and realizing what Juzo meant when he said starting with his ice made it easier for him. Juzo then appears and tells the two of them he had trouble with their attacks and if they can have a rematch in the future, to which the two accept. Round 4 then begins with Team Bakugo and Team Tokage.
   
Onlookers believe this may be a new ability of Izuku, but he's actually struggling in pain to control this power. The tendrils pull Izuku into the air as he pleads with [[One For All]] to get back under control. The tendrils even threaten his teammates, which gains Ochaco's attention. Izuku believed he was improving since getting his Quirk and dismayed that this power is raging again.
+
===Round 4===
  +
As both sides make their way through the field, Katsuki yells for his team to hurry up. Kyoka tells Katsuki that she's trying to listen to sounds as she goes only for Katsuki to tell her and the rest of them to just follow him while he goes on the offense. When Katsuki spots someone, Kyoka tries to pick up soundwaves, only to realize it's a trap, as the team is ambushed by Setsuna and her [[Lizard Tail Splitter|Quirk]]. [[Hanta Sero|Hanta]] uses his [[Tape|Quirk]] to create a [[Barricade Tape|barricade]] to block the split parts only for the team to get covered and trapped in [[Kojiro Bondo|Kojiro]]'s [[Cemedine|Quirk]]. [[Togaru Kamakiri|Togaru]] uses his [[Razor Sharp|Quirk]] to drop a pipe on the team only for Katsuki to blow it away. He tries to get the drop on Kyoka but Katsuki blows him away, as she thinks back to how he said he would save them if they were in a pinch. Katsuki then declares that they will obtain a flawless victory with no injuries.
   
Just as the darkness threatens to consume Izuku, Ochaco rushes to his side and floats her way up to him, grabbing onto him. She yells for Hitoshi to brainwash him in the hope that his power will subsequently stop.{{Ref|chap = 211}} Hitoshi panics and tries to think of a correct question he could ask Izuku that he would actually answer to. He quickly calms down and reminds himself of his first clash with Izuku, realizing that he's come a long way since then and truly wishes to prove it. He removes his mask and asks Izuku if they can have their proper rematch. Izuku confirms and allows himself to fall under Hitoshi's spell once again. The mysterious black power disappears as he loses consciousness.{{Ref|chap = 212}}
+
As Kojiro makes a retreat, it's revealed prior that Setsuna said that they need to advance Katsuki's team and keep their own distance, while waiting for the right moment Katsuki slips up and the rest fall with him. Katsuki proceeds to chase Kojiro, but [[Yosetsu Awase|Yosetsu]] gets the drop on Katsuki by using his [[Construction-Done-Kwik: Weldcraft|Super Move]] to trap Katsuki in place, only for [[Rikido Sato|Rikido]] to use his [[Sugar Rush|Quirk]] to free him, allowing him to continue chasing Yosetsu. As Yosetsu sets himself up for Katsuki, he gets out of the way and leaves him for Hanta and Kyoka, who defeats him using her [[Heartbeat Surround|Super Move]]. Katsuki catches up to Kojiro and douses him in his [[Explosion|explosions]], allowing Rikido to grab him. Both Neito and Setsuna are left shocked by Team Katsuki's flawless teamwork and lack of a noticeable gap. Hanta and Kyoka tell Katsuki that Setsuna can only leave her body split into pieces for a limited time before she's forced to reform herself, just as Katsuki defeats Togaru with his [[Explode-A-Pult|Super Move]]. Setsuna notices a grenade taped to a piece of her as it gets closer. She manages to get out of the way only for Katsuki to get the drop on her and defeat her with a Zero Distance Stun Grenade. She declares he changed too much only for him to state he's still the same and he'll still surpass All Might.

===Round 4 Aftermath===
Ochaco immediately shakes Izuku to wake him from the brainwashing. Ochaco calms Izuku down as they float in mid-air. Neito takes advantage of their guard being down and ambushes Izuku from behind while floating on an enlarged metal nut, attempting to touch him and copy his Quirk. He manages to knock Izuku over and Ochaco tries to subdue him using [[Gunhead]] Martial Arts.

Team Katsuki is announced the winner with a 4-0 victory in five minutes. Shota praised the team for their teamwork while Vlad King tells his students that while they had a solid approach, they fell apart too quickly. Class 1-A praise Katsuki for his performance and Izuku tells that he'll surpass him. Round 5 begins with Team Midoriya and Team Monoma.
   
Reiko arrives in time and saves Neito by using flying projectiles to distract his attacker. Ochaco dodges as everyone from both teams join the fray, the once technical battle turning into an all-out brawl. Hitoshi sends his [[Capturing Weapon]] flying at Ochaco, but Izuku darts out in front of her and grabs it, ready to face Hitoshi once again.{{Ref|chap = 213}} Despite Izuku's chaotic outburst, all of the students are still eager to win the fight.

===Round 5 Aftermath===
Izuku explains to Ochaco that he can't use his Quirk after what happened earlier, saying he'll have to rely on her powers to aid him against Hitoshi. Mina fires her [[Acid Shot]] attack at the other team, but Yui blocks it with an enlarged plate of metal. Nirengeki throws a projectile on the ground before increasing its velocity using his Quirk, and Minoru protects Mina from this attack using his [[Grape Buckler]] shield.
 
 
[[File:Ochaco Uraraka uses GMA on Neito Monoma.png|200px|thumb|Ochaco uses G.M.A to subdue Neito.]]
 
As it turns out, Minoru's plan the whole time was to get pushed into Mina's chest. Annoyed, she throws him at the other team using her [[Acid Layback]] and Minoru bounces off his own balls for a [[Grape-Pinky Combo Mineta-Bounce]] attack.
 
 
Neito throws a projectile at Izuku and Ochaco, but the latter deflects it with her wrist-guard. As Neito's touched Izuku and therefore copied his Quirk, he attempts to activate One For All but it doesn't appear to work, allowing Ochaco to jump on him and swiftly pin him down.
 
 
Hitoshi realizes his teammate's been caught and calls out to him, readying his binding cloth to use to support Neito, but Izuku uses Ochaco's Quirk to float up to his position above the battlefield, distracting him from his captured teammate. They both start grappling and Hitoshi reminds Izuku of their last bout, and Izuku knows Hitoshi is too big of a threat not to neutralize now. Hitoshi claims he's not the same as before and tries to bring the pipes down on Izuku the same way he did in [[Joint Training Battle/Round One|round one]].
 
 
[[File:Izuku Midoriya floats to Hitoshi Shinso.png|200px|left|thumb|Izuku takes the fight to Hitoshi.]]
 
Izuku recalls the short time he spent in One For All after falling under Hitoshi's brainwashing. He spoke to a former One For All user and was told to use his new Quirk, [[Blackwhip]], by keeping his heart under control. This man reminded Izuku of All Might, and that gives him enough heart to focus and use the black tendrils to suspend the pipes in the air.{{Ref|chap = 214}}
 
 
Hitoshi is surprised by this new development and asks if Izuku was only faking being in pain before. Izuku suddenly gets some painful physical backlash for using Blackwhip, realizing his body isn't ready for it's power yet and he must master One For All first. To avoid another outburst, Izuku adjusts full cowl to 8%.
 
 
Neito sends a metal pipe at Ochaco, who's tied him up and is floating him to the cell, with Poltergeist and she dodges it quickly. She turns to him, realizing that, as five minutes has passed, the time limit of his Copy should be up now so he'll soon lose access to his teammate's Quirks. Neito taunts her, saying that he could've extended his limit to ten minutes, and asks her if she thinks she could beat him one-on-one. Ochaco looks defiant but doesn’t verbally reply, and Neito realizes just how cautious the Class 1-A team has been because of Hitoshi's Quirk. He asks if Ochaco knows how many Quirks he can copy at a time, and, noting the number of clocks on his belt, she holds up three fingers, and he slyly asks what she would do if it was four.
 
 
[[File:Izuku_Midoriya_hit_by_Twin_Impact.png|thumb|200px|Neito gets the last laugh. ]]
 
As Ochaco starts to move Neito into the cell, he begins to explain Copy to her. He says that although he can only use one Quirk at a time, the effects of one Quirk will remain even after he activates another unless they directly affect his body. Ochaco pushes him into the cell and he laughs, knowing she doesn't get where he's coming from.
 
 
Ochaco has tied Neito up and is taking him to the cell by floating him. She realizes his Quirk's time limit of 5 minutes should be up, and he begins to taunt her, saying he could've improved it to ten which would mean he'd still be a threat. He begins to talk about his copy number limit, asking her if she knew how many Quirks he could copy at once, but she doesn't understand what relevance that bears.
 
 
[[File:Ochaco_Uraraka_takes_out_Reiko_and_Yui.png|thumb|left|200px|Sneaky Uravity takes out the girls.]]
 
Ochaco successfully locks him up, but not before Neito uses Nirengeki's Twin Impact to hinder Izuku's pursuit of Hitoshi. Nirengeki subdues Minoru with a strong punch to his gut after reading his moves, and Reiko follows up with a metal rain attack on Mina. Class 1-B begins to gain momentum, but Izuku refuses to give up.
 
 
Izuku spins off a wall to completely evade Hitoshi's Capturing Weapon. He remembers his origin and this gives him enough courage to use his Quirk without fear. Ochaco chops Reiko's neck to subdue her from behind and then pushes Yui into a trap made of Minoru's balls, which gives Mina an opening to uppercut Nirengeki to save Minoru. At the same time, Izuku pins down Hitoshi, reminding his team of the claim for a victory that he made before the match began.{{Ref|chap = 215}}
 
 
Class 1-A’s team manages to turn the battle around as soon Nirengeki, Reiko and Hitoshi have soon joined Neito in the cell.

Revision as of 01:09, February 13, 2020

The Joint Training Arc (対抗戦編 Taikōsen-hen?) is the fifteenth story arc in My Hero Academia, as well as the sixth story arc in the Rise of Villains Saga.

Class 1-A and 1-B compete against each other in a Joint Training Battle, joining them is Hitoshi Shinso who is eager to enter the Hero Course. While the exercise is being held, Izuku discovers a new secret about One For All; one that none of the previous eight users ever could have dreamed existed.

Summary

Enter: Hitoshi Shinso

Following a discussion on the vestiges, Izuku and All Might run into Hitoshi and Shota, wherein Izuku recalls Hitoshi meeting with his teacher at an earlier date, which is received with a rather ambiguous response, before the aforementioned teacher advises him to hurry along to the training ground.

Now dressed in their winter outfits, Class 1-A gather at the training ground and share the modifications made to their costumes, causing Ochaco to remember Izuku and Mei's encounter back when they were remodeling parts of their outfits together, resulting in a flushed outburst, much to Mashirao's surprise.

Suddenly, a voice interrupts the group, revealing Neito and the rest of Class 1-B, also clad in their hero outfits. Neito proclaims that 1-B have the upper hand in the ongoing rivalry between the two classes, as they prevailed victors (by two ballots) in his self-researched survey of which the favored performance was at the School Festival, attempting to continue for his prediction of the result during their training, however being cut off by Shota's Capturing Weapon.

The homeroom teachers of both classes announce the arrival of a potential hero candidate from another class, disclosing the student as being Hitoshi, creating an understanding for Izuku as to the meetings he and Shota engaged in.

Upon being requested by Shota to introduce himself, Hitoshi expresses his feelings bluntly, stating the other students as obstacles he must overcome due to being so far behind at current, also stating he has no intention of making friends here in his journey to becoming a hero. It is noted by Hanta that Hitoshi's current image resonates with that of Shoto's prior to the U.A. Sports Festival.

Ground Rules

Vlad King begins by explaining that the training will take place on Ground Gamma, where the two classes will go head-to-head in teams of four to battle it out, however Jurota notes that there are 41 of them in total, now that Hitoshi will be joining them. Vlad clears this up by stating that Hitoshi will participate in two battles, one on each side. Toru follows another misconception up, stating the team of 4 will have a disadvantage against the team of 5, causing Vlad to once again intervene and clear up the fact that integrating Hitoshi, who has had little to no battle experience, into the team will prove a magnanimous task in itself. He then explains how the winner will be decided: the team to capture 4 members of the opposing will win, irrespective of total numbers per side.

Teams

The two classes are divided into teams and Shinso draws two numbers to see what battles he will be participating in. Class 1-A consists of Team Asui, Team Yaoyorozu, Team Todoroki, Team Bakugo, and Team Midoriya and Class 1-B consists of Team Shiozaki, Team Kendo, Team Tetsutetsu, Team Tokage, and Team Monoma. Hitoshi draws the numbers of Team Asui and Team Monoma, exciting both teams who express their eagerness to working with him. Ochaco points out to Izuku that this training will be a rematch between him and Hitoshi with Izuku claiming he is excited to see Hitoshi's growth.

As the training is about to begin Midnight and All Might appear, eager to watch the Joint Training. Midnight asks All Might who he thinks will do better in the training. All Might responds, even though Class 1-A is strong and has overcome numerous crises, Class 1-B has been able to develop their skills and quirks more due to staying out of trouble. Vlad announces the beginning of the first round, Team Asui versus Team Shiozaki.

Round 1

Team Asui decides to stick together and overwhelm Team Shiozaki with their numbers. Tsuyu starts out camouflaging herself on the wall and Hitoshi comments how if you're aware of it, you can still see her. Denki offers to split up from the group and fire off his Quirk only for Eijiro to question what he'll do once he's all alone. Hitoshi offers to neutralize the ones who have the most troublesome Quirks, as it's probably what the other team is thinking.

Just then, Koji's birds return, to which he reveals that Ibara is to their left all alone yet she's heading their way while using her vines to probe all around her. Before they can act, Jurota comes charging in. He reveals that they knew Koji would locate them with his birds and that they'd be wary of Ibara's Quirk after the Sports Festival, so they had her act as a decoy and allow himself to get in close using his Beast to avoid leaving Denki to his own devices. Kosei, who was riding Jurota, uses his Quirk to imprison Koji in an air prison to prevent Denki from using his Quirk around his teammates. Kosei then comments on Jurota's accomplishment only for him to become still, as it's revealed Kosei never said anything, but the voice came from Hitoshi, using his Artificial Vocal Chords: Persona Chords.

Early before, Hitoshi explains how his Quirk works to his team, but also reveals that he can't make his brainwashed targets talk. To fix that problem, Hitoshi's Artificial Vocal Chords essentially alters his voice to mimic someone else's voice. As we catch up to the present, Kosei traps Hitoshi in another Air Prison and wakes Jurota up from his brainwashing. When Jurota charges to attack, Denki steps in the way with his own Quirk. He gets smacked aside but manages to shock Jurota. Kosei's efforts to escape electrocution by jumping off Jurota leaves him open to be grabbed by Tsuyu with her tongue. As she proceeds to carry him to their jail cell, Jurota proceeds to chase after her. Koji and Eijiro try to keep him back but he dodges them by changing back to normal, then transforms back into a beast and grabs the both of them. Jurota throws Eijiro high into the air and into Ibara's field of vision, stating that he's the only one who can withstand his power. Denki and Tsuyu, who delivered Kosei, try to save Koji but Jurota escapes for the time being, and both Eijiro and Koji are imprisoned, leaving the score as 2-1 Class B.

Tsuyu breaks Hitoshi free and the three of them regroup and try to come up with a plan. Back with Class 1-B, Ibara complains about how she was treated as a decoy only for Jurota to say it worked. Just then, Jurota picks up Tsuyu's scent, only to realize he's picking up three Tsuyu scents. Izuku and Minoru remember what Tsuyu said about how she could secrete her own mucus during the Attack on U.S.J, and that she applied her mucus to Denki and Hitoshi hoping to throw off Jurota's scent. Ibara attack with her 'Via Dolorosa' Super Move while Jurota tells her their locations. Hiryu wonders how their locations were uncovered only to notice one of Denki's pointers on Jurota's body. Just then, Ibara captures Denki and brings him forward. Denki fires his elctricity at pointer just as Ibara starts covering him in her vines, but Hiryu knocks it off Jurota's body and away from him with his scales. Just as Hiryu tells Ibara to respread her vines, she falls under Hitoshi's brainwashing, as it was revealed to be his voice sounding like Hiryu. It is then revealed that Denki offered to use himself as a decoy to give Tsuyu and Hitoshi an opening. Jurota goes wild trying to find Hitoshi and is unable to communicate effectively with Hiryu due to worrying about Hitoshi's Quirk. Hiryu tries to attack Tsuyu with his scales but fails. He tries again to communicate with Jurota but gets kicked by Tsuyu. Just as Jurota finds Hitoshi, Hitoshi uses his binding cloth to bring down several pipes onto Jurota's head. Tsuyu then throws Hiryu into Jurota, defeating the both of them. Tsuyu and Hitoshi carry a restrained Hiryu to the jail cell while a brainwashed Ibara carries Jurota. Round 1 ends with a 4-2 victory for Class 1-A.

Round 1 Aftermath

After the match Shota asks his students to reflect on the match. Eijiro states it's hard for him to make good use of his Quirk when he's not trying to fight, Koji states he needs to give better orders to insects, Denki states he was great, Tsuyu regrets losing two teammates, and Hitoshi laments not making good use of what he's learned. Shota tells Eijiro to work on developing set-ups to lure his enemies to close-combat, tells Koji to work on his weak points, scolds Denki for being too careless from the get-go, and tells Tsuyu to not dwell on her mistakes and to work on making up for them next time.

Vlad King calls his students out on that no one was really acting as a leader, and had they did pick one, they would've won. All the other teams work to prepare effective strategies while Shota and Vlad King ask about Hitoshi's performance, as the training is going to be his exam for entering the hero course. Round 2 then begins between Team Yaoyorozu and Team Kendo.

Round 2

As the two teams head to their starting points, Itsuka asks Momo why she didn't participate in the Beauty Contest of the School Festival, she responds that Shota probably didn't tell her because he felt it wasn't important, and even so, she was busy with band practice. Itsuka then tells Momo that ever since they appeared in the commercial during their Workplace Experiences together, she feels that the two, of them have been seen as a pair, yet Itsuka considers Momo possesses a better Quirk than her own and that she has better grades, which irritated her. This results in Itsuka tells Momo that she wants to duke it out with her, to which Momo accepts. Shihai then approaches Fumikage and tells him that they are fated to clash because of their love of black and darkness. Just as the two sides are set, Round 2 begins.

Hanta asks Tetsutetsu what Itsuka's standing in Class 1-B to which he says she's like the class's big sister as their class president who is cheerful and keeps her wits up and that without her, the class would suffer under Neito. Shoto comments on whether Momo can pierce her operation.

Itsuka tells her team that they have to wait and see how powerful their enemy team is, just as Dark Shadow locates the four of them, as it is revealed Fumikage has increased the range of Dark Shadow during his Work Studies. Before Class 1-A can make their move, Dark Shadow warns Fumikage that he's been hijacked by Shihai, who immediately uses Dark Shadow to attack Fumikage. Momo fires some nets at him but he dodges with his Quirk Black. Fumikage tells Shihai that he accepts his challenge as he takes off his cloak and reveals his new super move: Black Fallen Angel, which he developed under his intership with Hawks.

In a flashback, it's revealed that Hawks picked Fumikage during the Hero Agency Internships because he wanted to know more about the League of Villains from the class that faced them and figured he'd work with someone who he felt could keep up with him. As the intership continued, Fumikage started to feel frustrated and confused as to why someone as fast as him had picked him when all he was doing was cleaning up after Hawks did his job, causing him to feel he learned nothing that week. When Hawks picked him for the Work Studies, Fumikage became determined to prove himself. One night, Hawks tells Fumikage that he also picked him because he felt he was wasting his potential by not trying to strengthen his strong points in addition to his weak points, and he wanted to help him as a fellow bird. This is what ultimately inspired his new Super Move.

In the present, as Fumikage readied himself for a fight, Shihai reveals that he was setting him up mentally since the beginning, as his real target was Yuga, whom he grabs and proceeds to drag away. Just as Shihai was thinking how they'd never catch up to him in a place filled with shadows to move through, Fumikage catches up to him with his Super Move, allowing him to rescue Yuga. Momo then tells Yuga to fire off his Naval Buffet while Fumikage flies around to change the shape of the shadows, exposing Shihai. Just as Toru charges to catch him, a mushroom pops up on Momo's nose, as it's revealed that if Shihai's Plan A failed, Kinoko would perform Plan B with her Quirk Mushroom.

Kinoko spreads mushrooms everywhere, causing Team Yaoyorozu to lose sight of Shihai in the swarm of mushrooms. As Momo tries to get her team to regroup, they are then attacked by giant letters courtesy of Manga's Quirk Comic, which he then uses to help Kinoko's mushrooms grow faster. As Momo realizes she's been separated from her team, she is attacked by Itsuka, who uses her Quirk to go all out on Momo, keeping her from coming up with an effective plan. As Tetsutetsu comments on Itsuka's performance of separating her, only for Shoto to say that Itsuka was misjudging Momo as she works best under pressure. Just then, Momo uses her Quirk to create a cannon, shocking Itsuka. Momo then fires a bag over the wall Manga made to her team. Fumikage tries to save Yuga from Shihai again but is constantly held back by Kinoko's mushrooms and Manga's words, allowing him to imprison Yuga and causing Fumikage to deduce that if they don't find their locations, they're done for. Just then, Momo's bag arrives to Fumikage, which is revealed to be a pair of infrared goggles and three cans of ethanol, a fungal spray, allowing him to destroy Kinoko's mushrooms and locate Shihai and Kinoko to attack both of them. He has Dark Shadow restrain Kinoko while he traps Shihai in his cape. Before he can do anything, Fumikage starts coughing, as it's revealed by Kinoko that she has mushrooms growing in his lungs, to which Neito comments that Fumikage should have knocked Kinoko out from the get-go.

Toru starts attacking Manga but ends up getting grabbed by Itsuka with her Quirk, where Itsuka reveals to Manga that while she knocked Momo out, she ended up tying her up to the cannon, making it hard to move. She comments that Momo looked far ahead and was one step ahead of her, causing her to feel that she didn't win in the end. Nevertheless, Class 1-B bring the three of them to the jail cell, securing a 4-0 victory.

Round 2 Aftermath

Kinoko tells Fumikage to take medicine for the mushrooms while apologizing to him and Momo is taken to get treated. The teachers decide to take a break while commenting on how much destruction there was and reprimand Manga and Itsuka for it. All Might talks with Izuku about One For All and to take care in the fifth match while he himself talks to Gran Torino. Katsuki comes in and tells Izuku to hurry up and get stronger. Round 3 then begins between Team Todoroki and Team Tetsutetsu.

Round 3

Both teams head to their respective sides. On Team Todoroki, Tenya reveals he's in high spirits because his brother was making good progress on his recovery, causing him to feel to uphold his name as his brother's inheritor. On Team Tetsutetsu, Tetsutetsu comments on how he was able to get into UA despite not being too bright as well as commenting how his team doesn't have anyone who can search out their enemy, causing him to just go wild and break stuff. His teammates complain to Juzo but he remains flexible in his approach. Shoto notices the noise and deduces that this will be a head-to-head battle.

As Shoto's team makes their move, Pony comments on how they were charging in so blindly. Juzo says that he'll use Mezo to determine the situation, for if they were leaving themselves so open, then that means they were setting up for Shoto to unleash his ice, which indeed happens. Tenya, who was watching from afar, notes that they were trying to freeze the ground so Juzo couldn't use his Quirk and that they would attack when their movements were dulled. However, just as Tenya starts moving, Juzo activates his Quirk on the ice, making it soft while commenting that getting hit with ice would make it much easier for them. Mashirao stumbles on a softened pipe as Juzo states he left a few soft spots as traps, allowing Sen to get in close to fight him. Tenya is unable to get to Mashirao due to Juzo's Quirk eliminating his foothold.

Pony attacks Mezo and Shoto with her Quirk, stating that Mezo would have to be hiding within the limit's safety zone and around Shoto. Tetsutetsu then tackles Shoto with his combination Super Move Horn Dash Hammer. Meanwhile back with Juzo and Tenya, Juzo states he wanted to deal with Tenya due to his Quirk's time limit. As he prepares to back up Tetsutetsu, Tenya shocks him by revealing a new Super Move: Recipro Turbo, which allows him to run for 10 minutes as opposed to 10 seconds. He breaks free of the softened ice and proceeds to fight Juzo, causing him to retreat for the time being. Tenya catches up to Mashirao who is still fighting Sen and grabs him. He then tells Mashirao to back up Shoto while he puts Sen away. Sen tries to escape and questions Tenya on why he didn't pursue Juzo, resulting in Tenya stating his brother would've done the same.

Shoto tries to hold Tetsutetsu back with his ice before resorting to using his fire. As he tells Mezo to deal with Pony, Tetsutetsu reveals that his Quirk has increased his resistance to both ice and fire. He continues his attack on Shoto as Shoto recalls his past with his father. This causes Shoto to unleash fire stronger than Endeavor's, but it still doesn't stop Tetsutetsu, who yells that they need to go beyond their limits in training or they'll never be able to do it in real life. Pony decides to back up Tetsutetsu so she unleashes her Super Move on Mezo, only for him to fire his own back. Mashirao manages to arrive on the scene just in time to protect Mezo from one of Pony's horns and grabs her horns to keep her back. Before Mezo can go and back up Shoto, Juzo arrives to help her. Just as he planned to force Mashirao to let go, Mashirao spins around to blow him away and propel Mezo out of the mud. Pony tells Juzo to go while she uses her horns to propel Mashirao into their team's jail cell while the two of them continue to fight. When Juzo arrives at Tetsutetsu's location, he knocks debris on Shoto's head and then hardens him into the ground. Tenya then rushes in and kickes Juzo in the face, breaking his mask, and running off with the downed Shoto. Unable to lose, Juzo softens a large pipe and has Tetsutetsu knock it down on the two of them. When the dust settles, all four of them are down.

Pony catches up to the field and grabs her teammates and Shoto. She realizes she can't turn around to fight Mezo and isn't fast enough to deliver Shoto to the prison without getting caught, so she decides to wait out the match to prevent her team from losing. After 20 minutes pass, the match is announced a draw with 1-1 on each side.

Round 3 Aftermath

Shoto, Tenya, Mashirao, Tetsutetsu, and Juzo are taken to the infirmary. As Shoto wakes up, Tetsutetsu tells Shoto that even though it was a tie, he still feels he lost. Tenya apologizes to Shoto for not being fast enough but Shoto apologizes himself, thinking back to how Tenya helped him and realizing what Juzo meant when he said starting with his ice made it easier for him. Juzo then appears and tells the two of them he had trouble with their attacks and if they can have a rematch in the future, to which the two accept. Round 4 then begins with Team Bakugo and Team Tokage.

Round 4

As both sides make their way through the field, Katsuki yells for his team to hurry up. Kyoka tells Katsuki that she's trying to listen to sounds as she goes only for Katsuki to tell her and the rest of them to just follow him while he goes on the offense. When Katsuki spots someone, Kyoka tries to pick up soundwaves, only to realize it's a trap, as the team is ambushed by Setsuna and her Quirk. Hanta uses his Quirk to create a barricade to block the split parts only for the team to get covered and trapped in Kojiro's Quirk. Togaru uses his Quirk to drop a pipe on the team only for Katsuki to blow it away. He tries to get the drop on Kyoka but Katsuki blows him away, as she thinks back to how he said he would save them if they were in a pinch. Katsuki then declares that they will obtain a flawless victory with no injuries.

As Kojiro makes a retreat, it's revealed prior that Setsuna said that they need to advance Katsuki's team and keep their own distance, while waiting for the right moment Katsuki slips up and the rest fall with him. Katsuki proceeds to chase Kojiro, but Yosetsu gets the drop on Katsuki by using his Super Move to trap Katsuki in place, only for Rikido to use his Quirk to free him, allowing him to continue chasing Yosetsu. As Yosetsu sets himself up for Katsuki, he gets out of the way and leaves him for Hanta and Kyoka, who defeats him using her Super Move. Katsuki catches up to Kojiro and douses him in his explosions, allowing Rikido to grab him. Both Neito and Setsuna are left shocked by Team Katsuki's flawless teamwork and lack of a noticeable gap. Hanta and Kyoka tell Katsuki that Setsuna can only leave her body split into pieces for a limited time before she's forced to reform herself, just as Katsuki defeats Togaru with his Super Move. Setsuna notices a grenade taped to a piece of her as it gets closer. She manages to get out of the way only for Katsuki to get the drop on her and defeat her with a Zero Distance Stun Grenade. She declares he changed too much only for him to state he's still the same and he'll still surpass All Might.

Round 4 Aftermath

Team Katsuki is announced the winner with a 4-0 victory in five minutes. Shota praised the team for their teamwork while Vlad King tells his students that while they had a solid approach, they fell apart too quickly. Class 1-A praise Katsuki for his performance and Izuku tells that he'll surpass him. Round 5 begins with Team Midoriya and Team Monoma.
